    Another Massachusetts Republican is stepping up to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren. 

    Beth Lindstrom, who served in the administration of former Republican Gov. Mitt Romney, said in a video message posted on her website Monday that she's "all in"for the 2018 race. She said a more formal announcement will be made in the fall. 

    Lindstrom describes herself as an "independent-minded Republican," who would help counter the "finger-pointing" in Washington. 

    The Groton resident served as director of consumer affairs under Romney and later headed the state lottery. 

    Warren, a harsh critic of President Donald Trump, enjoys a national base of support as she gears up for a re-election bid. She had $11 million in her campaign account at the end of June. 

    Three other Republicans are also challenging Warren.
